How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I'm newer to this idea. I teach English as a Second Language to third grade and last year, I had several students who loved Star Wars. This was thrilling to me because I love Star Wars, so I tried to find them as many Star Wars books as possible at their reading level. I had planned to try a short novel study with this group at the end of the year, but we ran out of time. This year, I have accumulated a good-sized section of Star Wars books in my library, which I lend out to students. I also have several Star Wars fans and I plan to do a novel study with the first book in the Jedi Apprentice series by Jude Watson. However, I have not done it yet and I would love to connect with others to get ideas and see what other teachers are doing in their classrooms.
